We are THORPE PARK Resort and we are part of the magical Merlin Entertainments!

We are scouting for talented actors and performers to join our Entertainments team for a fixed term opportunity from August 2017 until early November 2017. This role is a great opportunity to be part of the Resort Entertainments & Events department and help bring to life our premier performance lead attraction; DERREN BROWNS GHOST TRAIN. Our exclusive Derren Browns Ghost Train team will be dedicated to ensuring our guests are thoroughly entertained as soon as they reach the fabled Platform 13 where they will begin their journey into the unknown???

Being involved in such a well-known and ground breaking attraction is a great privilege and the DERREN BROWNS GHOST TRAIN team work hard to ensure that every guest takes away a memorable experience from their attraction. If you are successful in joining the Ghost Train family you'll be lucky enough to work with colleagues from departments of all areas around the Resort, making friends and learning processes that are an ideal starting point for anyone looking for a Merlin career. The roles themselves are a mixture of heavily scripted, movement-based and improvisation-led so they are ideal for actors that want to hone their skills and gain experience on these aspects of performance.

Reporting to the Entertainments Team Leaders, Actors will be expected to partake in general housekeeping, be punctual, enthusiastic, have self-motivation and be adaptable to changes in our thrilling fast-paced business. It will be your role to portray the Resort's brand, through performing to a high standard at all times in accordance with rigorous rehearsals and health & safety training.

Ask yourself these questions:

Are you a disciplined Actor that is focused on the guest experience?
Do you like working in a fast paced environment?
Are you able to work as part of a team?
Are you able to deliver scripted performances?
Do you have the stamina to perform in a physical role?

If you answered yes to these questions then you could be in with a chance of joining the team and enjoy some of our great benefits including 25% discount in our retail shops and restaurants, 40% discount online off of LEGO, and much more! In addition the hourly rate is offered at GBP8.75/hour.

This is an extremely challenging role, requiring full input, dedication and commitment. Due to the nature of these roles applicants must be 18 or over, and have full time & part time availability (days off will be rota'd accordingly). The contracts we are offering will run from August until November 2017.

Please note that successful applications will be required to attend an audition at the Resort, these are held regularly and if your application is successful you will be invited to book onto an Audition.

We offer flexible opportunities, in a totally unique environment. We know this is a great place to work, but don't just take our word for it???
